Like all Cucina Fresca products, the gourmet Mac and Cheese dishes are handcrafted in small batches and made only with fresh, high quality, natural ingredients – exactly how mom used to make at home. The recently launched Mac and Cheese product line is offered in four distinct flavors that offer a sophisticated take on the ultimate comfort food – Sharp Cheddar, Smoked Gruyere, Creamy Fontina and Tangy Gorgonzola.

All varieties feature eggless penne pasta accompanied with a rich, creamy roux-based bechamel sauce made with rBST-free milk, fresh cheeses, unbleached white flour and a touch of whole creamery butter. Many of the staple ingredients are locally sourced from family farms, while others are imported from countries of origin – such as European cheeses – to create the best possible flavor and quality. Notably, the penne pasta is cooked al dente to properly absorb the sauce when heated, which is unlike most packaged offerings.

Available in 20-ounce portions, the heat-and-eat ready Cucina Fresca Mac and Cheese is perfect as a gourmet meal for two, or as a side dish for a family meal. The entrée is delicious on its own, or can be used as the anchor to create a wide range of easy skillet meals and other surprisingly simple recipes, such as pot pie and crab imperial. Each dish is available in convenient plastic microwaveable containers, which can be heated in the microwave or oven.
